The Wedded Bliss has been our best source of advertising
Since The Summit Club began advertising in The Wedded Bliss, the number of events at our venue has increased substantially. Even with the economy in a down turn, The Wedded Bliss has been our best source of advertising for the bridal side of our business.
I appreciate the effort that the magazine staff is continually making to improve the look and the quality of the magazine. I know this publication is something that we as East Texans can be proud of.
When we think we have arrived, we quit growing, and without always seeking to do better, we plateau. This philosophy of business is apparent at The Wedded Bliss, and we enjoy doing business with people who think like we do here at The Summit Club. I have gotten to know many of the advertisers in The Wedded Bliss which have become great sources for us to refer our brides.
It is always a thrill for our brides to announce their day in The Wedded Bliss. Is is an added bonus to wrap up their dream day.
Participating in the bridal shows has always been a success for us as well. The Wedded Bliss puts together a quality show that we always look forward to being a part of.
The wedding business can be hard and stressful at times, but the reward is great when you hear a bride say, "Thank you, it was everything I dreamed of." At that moment, we know we have all done our job.
Many thanks to The Wedded Bliss for helping us all to do a better job!

It's a great way to advertise
My experience advertising in The Wedded Bliss has been fantastic! Everyone that comes in the shop comments on our ad and how wonderful the magazine is. Anyone considering placing an ad in the magazine shouldn’t hesitate. It’s a great way to advertise. Thank you Sandra for everything.
Your publication really gets the word out
Thanks to The Wedded Bliss, Traditions provided catering services to over 100 weddings in 2009! Your publication really gets the word out.
The Wedded Bliss has contributed greatly to the success of my business
A few years ago, Sandra of The Wedded Bliss approached me about advertising in the magazine. I’ll admit, I was a little apprehensive at first, but after listening to her, I just knew that The Wedded Bliss was the perfect venue for getting the word out about Hunt Villa. It has been one of the best decisions I’ve made, and my business has taken off. I’ve met so many new and wonderful people. Merlean, the magazine’s graphic artist, always designs beautiful ads for Hunt Villa. The service that the magazine provides is more than I ever expected, making sure the ad is perfect. Sandra is a dream to work with and always confirms that I am pleased and satisfied with everything. She stays in contact, keeps me up to date, and is willing to help at all times. The Wedded Bliss has contributed greatly to the success of my business. I give many thanks to The Wedded Bliss!

The Wedded Bliss is the only way to go!
Before I opened “The Legacy” in November 2008, I contacted Sandra about advertising in The Wedded Bliss. I started advertising three months before I opened. By the time “The Legacy” was completed we had already booked several weddings and events. The Wedded Bliss has been a very powerful advertisement tool for our business and we cannot thank Sandra and her staff enough for providing this wonderful service for our business. The Wedded Bliss Is The Only Way To Go!

90% return from advertising with The Wedded Bliss
The last 3+ years I've advertised with The Wedded Bliss, it has brought me most of my business. The first year probably 90+% of my business came from my The Wedded Bliss Magazine. Over time I have gotten more return business, etc., but The Wedded Bliss still continues to be my biggest source of customers. Sandra is like having an advertising department, she works hard for each and every advertiser to help them build their business. Merlean, Creative Graphic Designer, is a fantastic graphic artist who designs your ad and gives it the POW! to grab your customers attention. They have recently added new employees to their company that are also friendly, helpful, and supportive. What I like about The Wedded Bliss's staff is, they love to help YOU, THEIR ADVERTISER, AND TREAT YOU LIKE FAMILY AND A FRIEND!

Weddings DOUBLED (almost TRIPLED) from 2008
When I first started advertising, I chose The Wedded Bliss. What better way to get your business going than with a wedding book? I started with the 1/8 page ad for several months. I had several calls every time the new issue came out. In 2009, I wanted to UP my game...I increased to a 1/4 page ad. The response was amazing...every month, I scheduled at least 5 consults. My booked weddings doubled (almost tripled) from 2008. I was able to include a cake photo in this size ad...Merlean and the creative department have never let me down. The lay-outs are always great. The whole process with The Wedded Bliss is so easy. I highly recommend advertising with The Wedded Bliss.

You're in good hands with The Wedded Bliss
Once again the magazine was a hit. Thank you for your leadership and organization. It has gotten to the point that I relinquish any worries, not my usual style, but definitely something I can get use to. I look forward to the expansion of the magazine and our business in turn.

For 2008, over 90% of our weddings were a direct result of THE WEDDED BLISS advertising. (Money well-spent, methinks !!!) MMMMMMMMMWAAAAHHHHHH !

Such a tremendous job
I wanted to say thank you so much!!! The ad is gorgeous. I was thinking about when I was on hold one time with you and I heard Casting Crowns playing, I knew then that you were a fellow Christian! You are a great testimony to others in deed and word. This was such a tremendous job and I am very appreciative!!!
I also want to compliment Merlean, she is an asset to you. I’m sure you already know that but I wanted to emphasize to you how wonderful she is to your clients. Her voice is always cheerful. She is kind and professional and so talented!! I adore her and love to talk to her. Sometimes we just talk and talk -too long but it’s because she’s too much fun!!!

The Wedded Bliss is the only true way to go
Sandra McNeese and team are the best and they know their stuff!
Since The Wedded Bliss, I was asked to do some designs for Donny Brown, the host of 'Whose's Wedding is it Anyway' at the Dallas Bridal Show Inc. I'm scheduled to teach a fruit carving class at The Cook's Nook. I've also been approached by many other companies and individuals that value art and health.
The Wedded Bliss is the only true way to go for bridal information with quality.
Thank ya'll from all of my heart.

We have been extremely pleased with advertising in The Wedded Bliss. I get several calls every week - not all of them become bookings - but, at least we know that people are seeing our ad in many locations. Sandra and The Wedded Bliss staff have been very helpful and supportive of our business. We have been doing business with them for several years now and will continue to do so. Many prospective clients tell me that The Wedded Bliss is the only place they have found help in acquiring a string quartet for their wedding.
Sandra and her staff have also been instrumental in our group playing for different Bridal Fairs in the East Texas area - thereby letting brides see us and hear us as well.
We appreciate you and thank you,
It's a no-brainer
Beyond word of mouth, my listing in The Wedded Bliss is my best form of advertising. I get the most value out of it than any other form of advertising I do. It's the only publication of its kind in East Texas, and I love that my company name is put right into the hands of my target market. With the reasonable rates The Wedded Bliss offers, it's a no-brainer for me to renew every year.

East Texas has several well known publications that advertise businesses and events, but they are lacking one special thing. " Love". Sandra loves her job and takes pride in her book The Wedded Bliss. She does an EXCELLENT job in distributing the books all over the region. She is a trustworthy person whom I respect and admire for all the wonderful things she has accomplished. I owe my success to her and her wonderful masterpiece.

I really can not put into words how great our advertising has been with you.
Busy can not even begin to describe our current schedule and it is thanks to you for allowing us to advertise in the best wedding magazine in East Texas. We have noticed that our clients are proud of their wedding and want to share it with others. The readers of your magazine are the direct market we look for. After ten years with the phonebook & newspaper we have seen outstanding return directly with readers of your magazine.

This past month I had a few couples run some announcements in The Wedded Bliss. It is a great bridal magazine and Sandra does a super job getting it out all over the East Texas area. It is full of tips, information, and all kinds of wedding goodness.
I had 3 couples place announcements and I really wanted them to be able to “stand out” from all the other ones in there so I came up with something a little different than what you typically see in the magazine. They all ended up loving it and getting compliments from people they know. I already have couples tell me they can’t wait to be in the next issue.
You really should stop by any bride-ish place in East Texas and pick one up for yourself.
Business has tripled
I am a small business owner and advertising for me has been a struggle. I have wasted lots of money on bad advertising choices. Sandra, the owner of The Wedded Bliss, talked to me several times about advertising in her magazine. I was very hesitant at first, it was a big expense to take being a small business on a limited budget. At first I tried just a listing in the back. I did receive some calls but it just wasn't enough to justify my cost. With the start of a new year I decided to do a big ad for one issue. I booked several wedding cakes from that one ad so it really paid for itself. I have since continued doing a picture ad and my wedding cake business has tripled since last year. I want to thank Sandra for working with me on building my business. She treats everyone as a friend and doesn't make you feel like she just wants your money. I would recommend her services to anyone who is wanting to grow their business, it is money well spent.

It is important for an advertisement to catch the eye of new readers, and The Wedded Bliss' talented graphics artist strives to get exactly the look I want in my ads, down to the color, font, and smallest detail. In the first 8 days of my first ad in The Wedded Bliss, I sold enough product directly off that ad to pay for the entire year's advertising.
